Today is the Minor Snow (Chinese:小雪). Many places of north are snowing or in heavy wind while there is still nice sunshine in Kunming, also named Spring City. People here bathed in the sun welcome their old friends--black-headed gulls, as well as enjoy the beautiful scenery in winter.

Flying thousands of kilometers, these cute black-headed gulls enjoy warm weather here. Since the first appearance made in 1985, they have been closely tied to Kunming. These cute elves encounter and make friends with locals. It turns out that black-headed gulls have already become a name card of Kunming while Kunming is regarded as the best home for them in winter.


It is the best time to feed black-headed gulls now. As a result, Kunming Information Hub plans to launch an event of Meeting Kunming's Old Friends--Black-headed Gulls on December 1 under the framework of “Unveiling Yunnan”. Foreigners can register for it from now on to November 28.
